Daily API RoundUp: Google Partners, JustVisual, EVE Online and more

Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or Source Code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb’s directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there’s a listing in one of our directories that you’d like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.


Six APIs as well as some new libraries and source code samples have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in the past day. Here’s a summary of what’s new.

EVE Online provides a futuristic online gaming experience. It casts its players as elite spaceship pilots using Sandbox gameplay and skill-based progression. The EVE XML API is an HTTP read-only API that lets users access public information and private character or corporation information from EVE Online.
